You could be forgiven for having not noticed the emergence of one of Germany’s best domestic sides in recent years. Leipzig, a product of the Red Bull franchise have gone from strength to strength in recent years. The domestic league, although still dominated by rivals Bayern Munich, has seen the emergence of Dortmund, Leverkusen and Leipzig as challengers. RB Leipzig are a club of flair, that attack with purpose and have been amongst the leagues highest scorers in recent years. This season they are buoyed by the season signings most notably Andre Silva, who scored 25 goals for Frankfurt in the 2020/21 season. Finishing second behind Lewandoski last season opens opportunity for future bets on Silva finishing amongst the top goalscorer rankings at Betway.
Leipzig FC: Tactics & Principles
Leipzig are a side that rotate between a 3-5-2 and 3-4-3 formation allowing for free-flowing attacking with, usual point man, Andre Silva. The formations do allow for attacking freedom and creativity but does pose problems for a side if jobs are not adhered to. The 3-4-3 formation should usually be adopted in a game where a club feels they have the potency to score goals but with one player out of defensive position, or not closing as a unit, the holes are there to be exploited. Expect that Leipzig will be a side that can score goals but also a side that will concede invariably as players move in and out of the system. Their ability to carve goal opportunities makes Leipzig strong candidates for our Over 2.5 goals markets.
Leipzig FC: Bundesliga PREDICTIONS & What to Expect
Leipzig are yet to win the Bundesliga despite being runners up in the 2016-17 season and 2020-21 season. In truth, consistency is the key to winning any domestic league and Leipzig are, arguably, inconsistent as a side. The team possesses the ability to be world beaters on any given day but they drop points in the league at places you would expect them to be burying a side. Melbet has Leipzig at 1000/1 to win the Bundesliga this season. If those long odds do not fill you with much confidence in wagering on Leipzig to be crowned champions this season, you could check out the runners-up or third place markets at Betway.
Leipzig FC: UEFA Europa League PREDICTIONS & What to Expect
Despite achieving a semi final position in the Champions League in the 2019-20 season, Leipzig remain un-decorated with European honours so far. This season they play in the Europa League against a host of quality opposition, including Champions League regulars FC Barcelona. The one thing about Leipzig’s style being so focussed on attacking, if the fixtures fall correctly they are perfectly capable of winning the Europa Cup. Betway currently have Leipzig at 15.00 to win the Europa League. In a tournament where single game set up is more important than current domestic form Leipzig could go far in this competition and it would not come as a surprise to me to see them in the final.
Leipzig FC: Germany DFB Pokal PREDICTIONS & What to Expect
Twice Leipzig have been runners-up in recent years in the 2018-19 season and 2020-21 season respectively. Leipzig have the quality to win this cup, although the fixtures will need to fall in their favour. European nights can cause tiredness in players, especially when travelling long distances and having to recoup for a weekend cup game. The fans will be becoming increasingly frustrated at Leipzig’s lack of silverware and this competition should be one of their main targets this season.
